The Cure announce 30 date European tour, including London and Manchester dates

23 November 2015, 10:25 | Written by Laurence Day

The Cure have detailed a mammoth array of European shows, including two in the UK.

Earlier this month a huge wave of North American dates was announced.

On the band's website, they describe this 17-nation jaunt as "their first major tour of the continent since 2008". They've played numerous festivals and one-offs, but this marks the first lengthy trek that the group will embark upon in over seven years.

Robert Smith & Co. will tour 22 cities across May and June 2016, with The Twilight Sad as special guests. The Cure promise to "explore 37 years of Cure songs, mixing hits, rarities, favourites and as yet unreleased tracks in a brand new stage production."
